I recently learned about the Chase Tower’s observation deck on the 60th floor, with a great view of the western side of Houston. Since it’s only open during regular business hours on weekdays, it takes a […]

Yellow Irishttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/04/yellow-iris/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/04/yellow-iris/#comments Fri, 10 Apr 2015 06:00:20 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7140 Continuing with my garden theme, this yellow iris was just down the fence from my roses. The yellow petals were so bright, I waited for a cloudy moment, so the details would show up better. This small iris is a pretty flower, but many times it can look wilty (is that really a word, wilty?) or can look […]

Springtime Offeringshttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/04/springtime-offerings/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/04/springtime-offerings/#comments Tue, 07 Apr 2015 06:00:38 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7132 Springtime is a fun time for photographers, if you like flowers that is. I didn’t expect to, but I have acquired an appreciation for the simplicity of flower images.  For a few weeks, my backyard offers up a selection of roses and lilies that make good candidates for the camera. I have to hurry though. A […]

San Antonio Skyline Panoramahttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/04/san-antonio-pano/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/04/san-antonio-pano/#comments Thu, 02 Apr 2015 06:00:33 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7123 Standing on the Hays Street Bridge, you can see the entire length of the San Antonio skyline. It is not as condensed as some cities, but there is still a lot to see. This pano was taken from nine images, stitched together. The final image of this San Antonio pano is 16,000 pixels wide!

Landry’shttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/landrys/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/landrys/#comments Tue, 31 Mar 2015 06:00:35 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7114 On a recent visit to Galveston, Texas, I spent much of my day in meetings, so I did not have much opportunity for exploring the area. The one evening we did go out, I traveled with a group, but took my camera anyway. Our one and only stop was Landry’s Seafood on the Galveston Seawall. The […]

Home for Dinnerhttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/home-for-dinner/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/home-for-dinner/#comments Thu, 12 Mar 2015 06:00:33 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7084 I guess this is a good thing. A die-hard, business person would look at this and see an empty office complex. They might think that business is going undone and profits are being lost. What a waste. But others might see the late hour and the empty lot, meaning that workers were home enjoying dinner with their families. […]

Yesterday and Tomorrowhttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/yesterday-and-tomorrow/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/yesterday-and-tomorrow/#comments Wed, 11 Mar 2015 06:00:12 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7076 If we could speed up time (without the negative effect of growing old) it would be interesting to see how things would change. How tall and large will our cities grow? How will technology change us? Will mankind find a healthy balance with our environment? Will we ever get along and live in peace. I can pose a guess […]

Colorful Mixhttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/colorful-mix/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/colorful-mix/#comments Mon, 09 Mar 2015 06:00:25 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7070 Sometimes just walking around downtown affords an interesting view to capture. Not that this scene is especially breathtaking, but I thought the colors of the evening, downtown buildings and headlights came together for a good mix. This was downtown Houston in December, when City Hall was lit up for Christmas.

The Samurai Warrior Galleryhttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/samurai-warrior-gallery/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/samurai-warrior-gallery/#comments Thu, 05 Mar 2015 07:00:49 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7066 One thing I enjoy about good museums is the atmosphere they create for their exhibits and the Houston Museum of Natural Science does it as good as anyone. Walking through the “Samurai, the Age of the Warrior” exhibit, you enter a room with several “warriors” sitting, awaiting your arrival. Needless to say, this was my favorite part of the […]

The Samurai Warriorhttp://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/samurai-warrior/ http://timstanleyphotography.com/2015/03/samurai-warrior/#comments Tue, 03 Mar 2015 07:00:02 +0000 http://timstanleyphotography.com/?p=7060 For almost seven centuries, the Age of the Samurai is a period of Japanese history when “those who serve” started as armed supporters of wealthy landowners and became warrior-administrators. The Houston Museum of Natural Science has a great display of Samurai artifacts, including weapons, armor and more. Though not what I would call a large exhibit, the […]
